Paul Coady "Driftin' Years"

( Coady has been around the Chicagoland rock scene forever, always delivery some solid, working class, rock n roll for the regular guy. But this newest release really cranks up everything that makes his, earnest heartland songwriting so special. I have always dug PC, but the lead track here "Show You How" is probably twice as good as anything I've ever heard him do. Screw Mellencamp, you want Midwestern everyman rock, that's willing to reference everything from Buddy Holly ("Maybe Baby"), to the Boss ("Nothin' For Free"), to  American history ("Billy Needed Killin', about the Kid not Corgan) Coady is your cat.
